What are dental implants?
The dental implant is an artificial piece of titanium that is inserted into the jaw bone to replace a missing tooth root. They offer a safe and permanent solution for replacing one or more teeth.
Nowadays if the condition of the bone and gums are good, minimum surgery is necessary; with this technique very satisfactory results are obtained with minimum post-operative discomfort.
Normally after dental extraction it is advisable to wait three months before dental implant replacement, sometimes when a front tooth is to be extracted, it can be replaced immediately with an implant to preserve the gum and bone, for the appearance of the future crown in that area then we hinder implant placement.

Overdenture is like a smaller conventional plate, supported with a dental precision attachment over a small number of implants for better retention.

FIXED FULL DENTURES
These are similar to overdentures but are screw fixed with implants and are ideal to replace teeth and support tissues like lips.
